Counting Couples, Counting Families Executive Summary provides an overview of the research conference that occurred on July 19-21, 2011. The materials in the full report are a culmination of the third Counting Couples conference in 2011 and two previous national conferences in 2001 and 2003 detailing comprehensive recommendations to facilitate standardization of family measurement across surveys. Sessions on marriage and remarriage, cohabitation, family structure and instability, family ties across households, and future directions provided rich insights into issues that need to be considered in seeking ways to measure family structure and dynamics.
